Ames Harding - 'Hummin''

8/10

Throughout his tenure to date, emerging artist Ames Harding has always looked to create a more dynamic sound than many in his field. As the son of globetrotting American musicians, spending his childhood in Maryland, Egypt, India, and Latin America, his multinational upbringing has given him this wildly adventurous sound that has served him well across a flurry of singles these last few years. And now he looks to delve deeper into his aesthetic on his immersive new EP 'Hummin'', a release brimming with innovative spirit at every turn.

Despite just three tracks in length, 'Hummin'' packs itself with plenty of fresh and distinctive ideas. Channelling a woozy Americana-inspired appeal for his latest outing, Ames Harding feels like the second coming of Beck with these new offerings. Blending a stripped-back approach to songwriting that tends to explore a more riveting production as it plays, he returns to the fold with a brilliantly fun and enjoyable romp that pushes his enigmatic direction further than ever before.

While his output over the years has certainly been a revered one, 'Hummin'' sees him in a far more refined and confident guise this time around. Oozing with broad and uplifting gems that all come with their own unique swagger, Ames Harding is continuing to cement himself as one of the more captivating names on the rise right now.
